It leaks between the center housing and the turbine housing, probably right where that small gap is between the 2 ends of the v-band clamp.
First grab your 7/16" deep and check the clamp to make sure it's tight. It may have settled in a little more after a few heat cycles. Brand new turbos have a greater tendency to leak as I found out after I installed my new center housing and media blasted turbine housing and they sandwiched together TOO easy, basically too much of a gap until they sooted up a little and eventually it sealed itself. My leak wasn't as bad as yours but I've seen that on other turbos with loose clamps. There's no where else it could leak exhaust like that
